When you want to get Real, Honest, Helpful feedback on your work , show your pictures to a photo editor.
While they are always looking for new work, in my opinion they aren't about to let second class or undeveloped work get by with out pointing out that it's second class and or under developed.
In my opinion it's the best way to get an honest appraisal of what you're doing. I found the experience to be very helpful.
It's true that it might not be the most comfortable experience you can have, but if you listen closely to what's said and get over your ego, it can be very rewarding.
I have to add that the people at Sul Ross ( http://www.sulross.edu/) did an excellent job of organizing the weekend and the presenters did their part to make the time spent very rewarding.
